The oral surgery team at Chicago Dental Arts has helped countless patients strengthen and restore bone loss in the upper jaw area.
The sinus lift process, which involves elevating the sinus membrane and placing a bone graft onto the sinus floor, is a very delicate augmentation and should only be carried out by the most experienced surgeons – Dr. Fedin has nearly two decades of experience with this procedure and will immediately make you feel at ease.
When Is It Used?
Sinus lift surgery is ideal for patients who do not have a sufficient amount of bone height in the upper area of their jaw. It’s also ideal for those who have sinuses that are too close to the jaw for dental implants to be successfully placed. This lack of natural bone could be due to a variety of reasons, including:
- Bone loss due to periodontal disease
- Tooth loss that also led to bone loss; once teeth are gone, the body naturally begins to absorb the bone back into the body. If teeth have been missing for a long period of time, there is a higher chance that this has happened.
- The anatomy of the skull naturally causes the back of the upper jaw to have less bone than the lower jaw.
Sinus lift surgery has become especially popular as dental implants have become more popular. Many patients receive this surgery as a preliminary step before ultimately receiving a dental implant. The bone may also be taken from your own body, referred to as autogenous bone, or from a cadaver. Rest assured that Dr. Fedin has the experience to execute this surgery without complications.
